- Arden B Clothing is a hip specialty clothing retailer of high-fashion and contemporary clothes. They have about 80 stores nationwide. If you don't have an Arden B near you then you may not know how small their clothes run.
They size their clothes two different ways.
One line starts at size 0, and the other starts at size XS. Both run tiny. If your about 5'1" or taller you may want to consider their size 2 or size S (they run that small).
They have a "wear to work" section so if you really want to brighten up a boring work day you'll look snazzy with one of their lace and ruffles or with fluffy chiffon in bright yellow this is place to find off the-beaten-path-beautiful styles. Fresh and funky clothes that run small.
